Diplomas, BTECs and National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are designed to help you learn in a practical way about a specific job area.
They can help you get the skills you need to start a job, progress in a career or go on to higher levels of education. Teaching is through project work and taught by tutors with industry experience.
Vocational courses are work-related qualifications and are the equivalent to GSCE (Levels 1-2), A-levels (Level 3) and university degrees (Level 4-7).
Unlike traditional modes of study, Vocational courses provide a fine-tuned mix of theoretical and practical work to serve as a suitable choice for a wide range of students. They serve a practical and real-world approach to learning, ensuring students have the experience of the working world without having sacrificing any of the essential theory.
The skills developed give learners a wide variety of options available upon completion of their course, ranging from the working world, university-level courses or even an advanced vocational course.
